Would you buy a used bank from this man?

I didn't catch the whole story because it was on the Chinese channel, but this morning on the TV news there was some senior official from the World Bank talking about providing financial advice to developing countries.

Looking at the current state of the developed world's financial system, this seems a bit like the Pope giving advice on sexual techniques.

exactly. I phoned my parents in South Africa and asked how it all was affecting them. They said not at all since the banks there didn't get involved with all those complicated products.
sometimes a little naivety helps.
